"Local water movement" & greywater

Dr. Peter Gleick, president of the water think-tank Pacific Institute and a MacArthur Fellow, wrote an interesting piece in the Huffington Post about a New Way of Thinking About Water. The connection to greywater? "A local water movement would give serious consideration to innovative distributed water-treatment systems for purification of water and for collection, treatment, and reuse of wastewater. The old centralized model of water purification, delivery, and wastewater treatment could use some competition from small-scale, distributed systems that may produce better local benefits. This includes expanding local efforts to use greywater". This is not the first time the Rainbow Water Coalition has heard this - recall this article about getting off the water grid that was part of this posting. Dr. Gleick is known for his forward thinking. It is great to see greywater reuse as part of the local water movement paradigm.
